Terrence Murphy started from very humble beginnings and worked his way up to where he is now. He first became an entrepreneur mowing lawns for residential and commercial places when he was 12. He then tried different jobs to help his family - which also taught him the value of hardwork. Eventually, he had a very successful football career and was even drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the NFL draft. Unfortunately, an injury that left him paralyzed from neck below ended his football career.
In a situation where anyone would normally just give up on their dreams, Terrence's competitive nature and skills pulled him through. When he recovered, he decided to start his career in real estate and this became his main focus and passion.
Today, Terrence is the CEO, Broker & Founder of TM5 Properties. TM5 has been a part of LeadingRE since 2016 which consists of the world’s market-leading independent residential brokerages in over 70 countries. In 2018 & 2019, TM5 was recognized in INC 5000 as one of the 5000 fastest-growing privately held small companies in the U.S.
